In Poker, You and I are only 1 Bone Apart

The French poker hand that believed the divine blessed and cursed

Napoleon took over the French court and loved its traditions. In fact, Napoleon was a traditionalist, which meant keeping the traditions of the French court alive. That’s why he loved to play games like the ones on review here.

The French loved games of chance, and they still do of course. Dice and cards were preferred, and it was common to retire to the salon after a dinner to play such games – which is where we get our word “Saloon”. There, they played poker and blackjack, and other kinds of games including what later became craps.

Can you imagine how Napoleon would have enjoyed online slots or mobile poker? It would have made his day. It was just the sort of thing which would have entertained him to no end for him and his friends.

Taking risks and gambling was second nature to him, and I’m sure that he would have loved playing that sort of game whenever he got the chance. Imagine how useful mobile casino games would have been for him when he was on the move with his army at all times of the day or night. He would have had the opportunity to while away the late hours of the night with such great fun without needing to round up a whole bunch of people just to sit down and have a little entertainment.

What Casino Games Would George Washington and God Play?

Founding Father vs. All-Father?

Is He A Better Gambler Than You?

In the Epic meeting of the minds … Washington makes God laugh … by telling him his plans

Can you imagine the image of George Washington and God playing a game of dice? Or cards?  Or taking turns pulling the arm on a slot machine?  That would be an image worth a Pinterest pin, wouldn’t you say?

George Washington was a great gambler on the battlefield. He took many risks, which is probably reflective of the day in which he lived. Back then, people couldn’t gamble online. They had to make do with what they had, which usually involved sitting around a table and playing games of chance. Usually, they played it with cards, like playing blackjack or poker. Or sometimes they’d play with dice, like craps or sic bo.

When George Washington wanted to have fun and relax after working hard all day, he probably would sit down and play cards with some very important people over mugs of spiced wine. This probably helped him refine his battle techniques for the revolutionary war, which is why we have such a great and independent country. Imagine if he had been able to refine his techniques with an online casino, the kind you can play anytime.

He probably would have had twice the fun, if not more. We might even have had a country earlier than 1776 because of his time he would have gained from playing online games. That’s the power of playing online games, because it saves you time and effort, which is what everyone wants – even George Washington.
